After winning their last home game in Polokwane just over a week ago against SuperSport United, Kaizer Chiefs are back in Limpopo for their second and final home game to be staged at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium this evening.

Chiefs had a tough day at the office in their previous outing, against Mamelodi Sundowns, where they lost the match and saw defender Given Msimango controversially shown a red card by referee, Abogile Tom.

A second defensive change sees Edmilson Dove returning from a one-match ban to take Thatayaone Ditlhokwe’s position. The last change is at right-back where Dillan Solomons returns to replace Zitha Kwinika.

The midfield will see Yusuf Maart make way for Sibongiseni Mthethwa and Mduduzi Shabalala is in for Edson Castillo. The last change is In attack where Ranga Chivaviro comes in for Ashley Du Preez.

Amakhosi will apply their 4-3-3 formation.

Bruce Bvuma is between the posts.

Frosler will once again play at left-back. Dove and Ngcobo are at the centre of defence, with Solomons slotting in on the right. .
